Donations to Flags for Fort Snelling will be used to support the production of the new sustainable flag staff. Our goal is to raise enough funds by the end of 2021 to order 250,000 of the new flags to place on Memorial Day 2022. This would be enough inventory to cover Fort Snelling’s growth for over ten years. The annual fundraising and budgetary needs would include annual flag order to cover the continual cemetery expansion.
Flags for Fort Snelling Donations
In 2018, Flags for Fort Snelling raised enough funds to purchase 200,000 disposable flags. Tens of thousands of flags are lost to damage each year simply because these flags were not meant for this sort of longterm use.
For 2020, we have started the fundraising effort for a new sustainable flag staff- The Legacy Flag. This new retractable plastic flag staff will be substantially more durable and is designed to contain the flag within an outer shell for protection. These flags will last decades for incredible cost and environmental savings!
Thank you for every effort and contribution, it is amazing how much support we have received in honor of our American Heroes. CLICK HERE to download a copy of our 501c3 to write off your donation.
